Why is International Student Exchange Important?
Students today realize that living abroad is not only an adventure, it has become increasingly important for success in a global society. They see international study as an excellent way to gain an advantage in applying to college and getting a job.
But the rewards of international student exchange are not just practical. They are also personal. Studying abroad exposes students to fresh ideas and different cultures. It allows students to confront new and challenging situations, and to try out their decision-making skills away from their parents and the comforts of home. Traveling abroad and staying with a host family also strengthens young people's coping skills, and, as a result, increases their maturity, confidence, independence, and critical skills for the demands of the next stages of their lives: college, career and family.
